Not every great career starts with a four-year degree. Certified nursing assistants, or CNAs, are in high demand across the country and are vital members of healthcare teams. Becoming a licensed CNA can lead to a long-term career as an in-home care provider or assistant in a healthcare facility. It can also be the jumping-off point to a nursing program.
Before starting work as a CNA, students must complete a training program that teaches 22 skills specified by the state and pass state exams. These skills include ambulation and transfers, handwashing, vital signs and range of motion exercises. MGA Academy provides an in-depth, four-week program with classroom as well as hands-on training to go beyond the 22 required skills. MGA Academy students spend one week in clinical rotations in a state certified healthcare facility and have a high percentage rate of passing state exams.
The MGA Academy skills lab is a state-of-the-art learning center where CNA students gain training and knowledge for three weeks before moving on to their fourth and final week of clinical rotations for on-the-job experiences.
MGA Academy program fees are $950 and cover all four weeks of training, CPR certification, background check, textbook rental and Colorado state exam fees. Day and evening classes are available with day classes running from Monday to Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. and evening from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
MGA Academy graduates say it best:
“I was a bit nervous at first but the staff welcomed our class with open hearts and encouragement… I am thankful for MGA Academy having offered such an affordable, accessible and achievable program.”
“Classes were thankfully offered during the day or evening. I attended an evening class and honestly had a blast… The class instructor and staff at MGA Academy want nothing more than for you to succeed. I’m happy to say that taking the class offered by MGA Academy has been a huge benefit to myself and my family.”
“The class was amazing! And, the two teachers we had, Jenni and Cindy, really complemented each other. I have taken several different classes over the years and have never had teachers who could keep you so interested while lecturing.”
